Joe Carter was a rag trade manager who served two years in jail for fraud. Immediately on release he was offered a job at Underworld by Mike Baldwin. Joe and Karen McDonald had a complicated relationship. Their first intimate encounter was a steamy session on Joe's desk while Karen's husband Steve was hammering at the Underworld front doors. Joe left in 2003.
